Do You Have To Report All Test Scores

For the Common app online, it gives you 3 spaces for to type in your sat scores and 3 for your act scores. i've taken both tests twice. is it better to just put the best one only or do i have to report all of them? all my scores are on my transcripts anyway, right. does it look better if i just put one?

    there is a reason they give you 3 spaces

    Just put all of them.

    If you have one where math and verbal are your best, just put that one. you would only include several testing dates if you have higher math/verbal on different days.

    math/verbal is just two. why 3 spaces then? I would tend to think that azneverfrost's suggestion is reasonable.

    You misunderstood. What they meant was there are places for testing from 3 different dates, math and verbal for each date (3x2 = 6 spages total).

    Thus, it makes zero sense to just put down different dates if you have better scores from different dates because there are 3. Put them all! Why is this so difficult? They're going to get them alll anyway and it's going to look dishonest if you just don't put some scores down.
